“The Zapad-2017 exercise identified certain shortcomings,” Putin said. 

“They must be studied closely and extra measures worked out to enhance mobilization readiness,” he continued.

“The economy’s ability to promptly increase the output of defense products and services in wartime is one of the key conditions for ensuring the military security of the state. All strategic and large enterprises regardless of the forms of business and ownership must be prepared for this,” Putin said.
